To analyze the ionization rates we apply the computational scheme developed earlier for some problems of the muon-catalyzed fusion such as muon sticking to helium \cite{1} and the stripping of the muon from helium ions \cite{2,3}. Particularly, deexcitation and ionization rates of highly excited muonic helium stimulated by strong magnetic field were calculated \cite{2}. This approach was also used for for analyzing the laser-stimulated formation of antihydrogen atoms \cite{4}. Here we suppose to discuss the dependence of the ionization rates of the antihydrogen from the Rydberg states on the parameters of the external fields. \begin{thebibliography}{5}\footnotesize \bibitem{Enomoto} Y.~Enomoto et. al.
